    Pros

    Diversity..constant travel all over the earth. Constant change of scenery. Work with kind people of all cultures.

    Cons

    Work too many hours without recognition. EVERY EMPLOYEE is looking for a different job outside of Allscripts due to its' instability. More LAYOFFS are forecasted leaving every current employee nervous and leaving very few internal employees left to support the software. Contractors and third parties will win the implementation and support business - because there won't be any Allscripts employees left - From over 80 IC's last year to 10 currently.

    Advice to Management

    Even though we hear that customers and internal employees are being invested in...it is simply NOT TRUE. Allscripts clearly has demonstrated that they could care less about their clients or their employees. Protect the client base? The employees would love to, however, there are not enough of us left to clean up your mess Mr. BLACK.

    Pros

    Benefits are good, co-workers are great. Can work from home but the policy is changing and that privilege seems to slowly be going away.

    Cons

    Constant last minute changes. You basically are not expected to have a life outside of work and are on call for fire drills most of the time. Leadership is lacking and high-level management appears to be hired through the cliques, not through experience and knowledge. Bonus's are given to upper management only, although individual contributors put in as much, if not more effort. No job security - people are leaving or are being terminated, several very large lay-offs this year. Constant re-organizing with no direction or some making very little sense.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not going to bother with this as most of them won't listen nor do they care.

    Pros

    Pays decent, well known brand, some employees are knowledgeable

    Cons

    No internal communication, upper management non transparent, NO company culture, outdated software, unorganized, tedious processes to achieve end goal, office was unnecessarily under construction several times during the year to remodel, and not enough customer service for clients.

    Advice to Management

    Needs organization, streamlined communication within departments and between customers and employees. Needs to focus more on customer service for clients also.

    Pros

    Initially decent vacation and medical insurance packages, although each year the insurance got worse. Physical working conditions were acceptable, but conditions were declining as they worked toward moving everyone except top executives into a noisy and poorly planned open office environment. My immediate coworkers were talented and dedicated but increasingly leaving/being pushed out of the company due to the cons listed below.

    Cons

    Higher-ups jockeyed for control of parts of business resulting in frequent reorganizations. There was a relentless drive to force all product teams to work the same way, regardless of substantive differences in their markets, customer base, products, technologies, and team culture. The processes pushed down from above were typically ill conceived, overly complex, poorly documented, and constantly changing due to poor outcomes. Internal business systems were poorly implemented and frequently unreliable. Top leadership fundamentally did not understand how to empower the workforce to achieve extraordinary results. For example, they mandated a forced distribution of employee performance ratings and the resulting arbitrary termination of the “lowest” performers, practices that have largely been abandoned by top-tier companies as anti-team.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the management that is focused on building their own empires to the detriment of the company. Rationalize your product offerings, focus on offering a limited number of best in class products instead of trying to offer a full suite of what turn out to be mediocre products. Empower each product team to own their product; execute the appropriate development, implementation, and support processes for that product; and hold them responsible for the results. Stop buying innovative start-ups and then crushing them with micromanagement and mandatory adherence to broken processes that eventually destroys the value of what you bought.

    Pros

    It is basically a very good company with good benefits and salaries

    Cons

    Revenue Cycle Management on the NorthShore account is the worst you could ever encounter in your lifetime. Job Knowledge at the top is non-existent. They ride the backs of the staff with the knowledge while they run with the credit. Management gang buster style is very oppressive and very nasty to those of other protected classes; especially if you come across confident, smarter and more knowledgable than them. Bias ness and partiality is common place in the workplace; especially if you are not part of their click. There is opportunity for growth but management would subtle block your every move for advancement. The HR department is in co-hoots with management; so it does not make sense complaining to HR because it goes right back to management. I think Paul Black and others should hire a company to come in and speak to the staff concerning the Allscripts Revenue Cycle management at LI; and also speak to the client -NorthShore on the quality of service from Joe Mann and his team. Paul Black would be surprise to know that they are just in there for the big $$$$ - nothing else.

    Advice to Management

    Get some training on professionalism, management and general office etiquette. Treat people with respects regardless of who they are. Stop putting pressure on staff to quit because you have no reason to fire them. When you come together it should be for the good of employees not to figure out ways to CYAs at the employee's expense.
